51_27b/2012Back Cover: Controlled Synthesis of Titanate Nanodisks as Versatile Building Blocks for the Design of Hybrid Nanostructures (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 27/2012)

Inorganic nanocrystals play a central role in nanoscience and nanotechnology. In their Communication on page 6608 ff., F. Kleitz, T.-O. Do et al. present the bottom-up, non-aqueous synthesis of uniform titanate nanodisks with diameters of 12–35 nm. These nanodisks have been used as building blocks for a variety of hybrid nanostructures, such as titanate-based mesoporous hybrids with high surface areas and tailored porosity, as well as metal-titanate colloidal hybrids exhibiting enhanced catalytic activity.
